1st Floor

Sherman Hayes Gallery

The Sherman Hayes gallery is located on the first floor of Randall Library near TAC. Consisting of a very large art wall, complete with professional-grade track lighting and open gallery space for sculpture and other three dimensional items, this is Randall’s largest exhibit and event location.

2nd Floor

2nd Floor Gallery

Located at the top of our main staircase and on Randall Library’s dedicated quiet study floor, the 2nd Floor Gallery is the perfect wall space for an exhibit of paintings, photography, or any other type of two dimensional materials. Track lighting. Due to its high volume of traffic, between the Graduate Study Space and the Graduate Computer Laboratory, we typically use the 2nd Floor Gallery for our annual fall semester exhibit highlighting UNCW’s Common Reading selection.
